Because it was such a success last year, I will again be presenting Reports to the People instead of a State of the City address this year. The meetings allow for more personal, interactive and accessible communication with the residents of Fort Wayne.

I plan to make several presentations at locations throughout Fort Wayne. The reports will be targeted toward specific groups, including neighborhoods, businesses, non-profit groups and the City’s youth. In each meeting, I will touch on the achievements Fort Wayne has made in the past year and highlight my administration’s goals for 2003. Each report will also include a special announcement of interest to the targeted group.

Here is the schedule for the 2003 Reports to the People:
